Call of Duty: Vanguard has just arrived, meaning that players can hop into matches and start earning in-game rewards. Here's how to unlock the "Snowstorm" sniper rifle Blueprint for use in Vanguard and Warzone.

Some in-game rewards for Call of Duty: Vanguard can be earned even before playing a single game. One such reward is a Blueprint for the 3-Line Rifle sniper rifle which, once earned, is one of the more promising guns in the game at the moment. So, how can players unlock this Blueprint right away?

How to Unlock the Vanguard 'Snowstorm' 3-Line Rifle Blueprint

Unlocking the Snowstorm 3-Line Rifle sniper rifle Blueprint is extremely straightforward. All players need to do is purchase the Ultimate Edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

As hinted at by its name, the Call of Duty: Vanguard: Ultimate Edition is the most premium offering available for the new game, and is listed at $99.99 USD.

Among the Double XP bonuses, ten Battle Pass Tier Skips and other goodies, the Ultimate Edition includes the Task Force One Pack, which grants three themed Operator skins and these Weapon Blueprints:

  • Legendary "Breacher" STG44 assault rifle Blueprint
  • Epic "Snowstorm" 3-Line Rifle marksman rifle Blueprint
  • Legendary "Thunderhead" Type 100 SMG Blueprint

All three of the Task Force One Pack Blueprints feature Tracer Rounds, but the Breacher is likely going to be the best of the bunch thanks to the STG44 already being one of, if not the best weapon to use in the game early on.

The Snowstorm 3-Line Rifle delivers one-shot eliminations with ease. Its seven preconfigured attachments include a silencer for low-profile shots, a lighter magazine for fast reloads, and armor-piercing bullets for extra damage against vehicles and Killstreaks, particularly useful when shooting down enemy Spy Planes.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is available now on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via
